I'm wondering if lard would work instead of the suet.......

My mom (and her mother before her) made Suet pudding every Christmas.
Mom will be making it this year too, as my sister really wants some. I
say YUCK, but what do I know? ;-)
It is becoming difficult to find suet (most butchers have no clue). We
could still find it here at our local Publix, last year. And they
didn't even charge for it! Hoping they have it this year.
Mom's recipe has a "sauce" for over top it. I don't know what's in it
but I do know it is "spiked" (whiskey I think?). Grandma always stubbed
her toe while pouring the "spirits"!!!
If anyone is interested I will get the recipe from my mom. Or if John
would just like to compare it with the one Joyce found.
Suet is the fat from around the heart (or kidneys will work).
